Support Fish 'n Fins Montserrat

Thank you for visiting my page and supporting my movement to create  the next generation of Ocean Leaders!


Hi, my name is Veta Wade , from Happy Hill, Montserrat. In 1997, at 17 years old I was evacuated from Montserrat to the United Kingdom, due to the eruption of our Soufriere Hills volcano.  It caused a total  devastation of more than half of our tiny island

Approximately, forteen years later, I returned to Montserrat, determined to make my contribution to its redevelopment. 
What is Fish'N Fins
I started my Ocean Kids Club, Fish 'N Fins , in July 2015. It is  available to children between the ages of 7 - 14 year olds.  Local children get swimming  and sea safety lessons, go snorkelling, learn to identify fish, coral and invertebrates, and patrol our reef for marine debris and  invasive species such as lionfish.  Our program is creating the next generation of Caribbean ocean leaders, in an island where very few of us have ever experienced life under the sea! 

Project Achievements/Press
We are proud to say in less than one year over 150 of our local children have been enjoying the ocean.  My story has also been featured in the coastal science online publication, Hakai Magazine , and  Discover Montserrat ! 


Why I need your help

Our biggest challenge is funding, which has been  limited to my  personal funds, as well as those of my family, friends, and a few interested local residents. I need your help to ensure the  sustainability and growth of this unique  program, for Montserrat and our youth; the value of which is immeasurable.
